Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap


Jan 16, 2011

 

We actually recorded this one last week, since we're at MarsCon in Williamsburg VA this weekend.  Yes, we ate cheap twice in one day - our dedication to the listener knows no bounds.

This week we take a taste of two vegan dishes, and two meat dishes. On the vegan side, we have Fantastic World Foods' Spicy Thai soup and Kashi Mayan Harvest Bake. On the meat side, we have Goya Ham Croquettes and Uno Tastefulls Peperoni Calzone Cuts. We're pairing all of this with Le Drunk Rooster wine (spoiler : don't drink this). 

Remember, we eat it so you don't have to, although this week you have to try at least one of these...

The Screw-top comment is misplaced. Cork trees suffer from a fungus infection that - if the particular cork used to seal the wine is infected - will adversely affect the taste of the wine.

Because of this, many, many high-end wineries, including prestigious European ones, are switching to screw-tops.

A winery that uses screwtops instead of corks is showing that they care more about their wine than their 'appearance' to the world as cheap.

This doesn't mean, however, that the wine they make is any good. It just means that it isn't good because they make crappy wine, not because it was infected with cork fungus.

Eating processed food twice in one day canNOT be good for you.
